This is probably one of the best ride reports that I’ve read.
Awesome trip! We enjoyed every day, right along with you!
"Sam. Take off your shirt.
Sam. Lose the socks and shoes.
Sam! Why are you naked man?! Well, since you are, let me tell you that you have created a thing of beauty here. I mean, from the start. But this last section is a masterpiece. I love you man. But, I think we went too far. Just put your clothes back on. We can talk about this with you in shorts and a tee-shirt just as easily. But naked or not - I love you, dude."
Angelo, you gotta know that somewhere (perhaps reclining in his Lay-Z-Boy), Sam Correo is reading your ride report and gets to the part I'm referencing above...Now he's thinking to himself, "Goddamit Angelo, why did you have to go & make this whole thing weird!"
Sure enjoyed this-----
I'm around Sam a whole lot-----------he never gets on ADV-----be neat if he read some of the cool stuff on here.
Ha! I know just from some of the roads he put me on that Sam has to have a great sense of humor. I'm sure of it!
Absolutely the best ride report I’ve ever read.
Congratulations on an adventure of a lifetime.
Thanks for all the quality entertainment gentlemen.
It sincerely was a real treat to follow along on your adventure.
BTW, What's a guy have to do around this place to get a "Team CT125" steeeker?
Great messages and fun.
Come back to Oregon ... see more sights!
A great ride! Thank you.
Is there more to the story? The return to back home and how?
A review of the bikes and their condition at the end of the trip?
Let me add my kudos for this report. A perfect blend of humor, practicality and screw it all dumb ass fun. You guys rock.
Will give more of an update on getting home etc later. But for now - let us know what you think of our video series preview....
regarding trees in Oregon, those are Douglas Fir that were replanted after clear cutting. You rode through a lot of DF which is why it smelled like a Christmas tree lot.
The State sets the minimum standards, including how much and where clear cutting can take place, and approves all harvest permits. Part of the permit is a regeneration plan. I don't know of any cases where the company I work for did not replant more than the required minimum. Everything we do is to Sustainable Forestry Initiative standards, all of which is audited (quite a PITA actually).
I'm glad you didn't have any issues after you got behind the gates. Meeting a logging truck in a corner would not be fun. We use CB radios to call out where we are on the road. If anyone ever sees signs of active operations, please stay off the roads because you could be seriously hurt.
While it might not seem like it, the private land you rode through is a farm just like what you rode through for so many miles in other places. The difference is trees are the crop and they're harvested every 40 years or so and not annually.
The song really ties the room together. It's amazing!
Very nice video! Wasn't aware of the pine cone chain slack test.. learned a lot from your trek!
Although, brilliant is exactly what I've come to expect from you two hooligans.
BTW, nice "vertical" Angelo!
Thought that was #23 for just a split second!
Who said we got behind the gates! We got from one side of one gate to the other side of another gate. What happened in between is anyone's guess! Yeah - I was thinking to myself that there must be laws on how this all worked when I was looking at the clear cutting (this could have been clear cutting on either side of those gates mind you...) And then I saw acres and acres of new growth so I knew it was true. What a beautiful farm that must have been, had I had the chance to drive through it! Yup- sustainable indeed. Great to see the entire story unfold in real life.
Thx! I know the "vertical" must refer to one of my many flawless unplanned yet perfectly executed dismounts. But what's the #23?!
